The highboy is one of the most iconic furnishings of American heritage. Laurel Crown is committed to preserving the charm of old-world antiques by handcrafting quality reproductions that stand the test of time. Every antique highboy dresser we reproduce is carved, sanded, and finished by one of our master craftsmen. With more than 25 years of experience in traditional construction and workmanship, we know all that it takes to replicate an antique with great authenticity. Our Chippendale highboy dresser provides more than enough storage to keep all your valuables safe.
With an antique highboy dresser, you can create a focal point in any room. Each highboy stands approximately seven feet tall and will leave a lasting impression on anyone who observes its grandiose design. We use only fine Honduran mahogany to build each dresser. This species of mahogany has been used by cabinet and furniture makers for several centuries because it is revered for its superior workability, dimensional stability, and moderate rot resistance. A satin semi-gloss finish allows the swirling, reddish-brown grain pattern of mahogany to glow for years to come.
Each Chippendale highboy dresser is designed and lovingly made with the following:
- 11 traditional dovetailed drawers (without glides) to store clothes, jewelry, or other incidentals
- Hand-carved bonnet top pediment with latticework and flame finials
- Cabriole legs that terminate to ball-and-claw feet with neoclassical motifs
